I’m going to teach in Australia!!

I’m downright giddy because I’m headed to Australia in three weeks and will be teaching a special workshop there. Even if you do not live down under I encourage you to read this UPdate because I’m going to share about the magic of listening to intuition.

If you live in or around Sydney, join me on February 2nd for an all day event where I will be sharing my best tools for finding and living your purpose, creating loving relationships, generating abundance of all forms, and attuning to your intuition. I’ll also be teaching my brand new transformational goal-setting process and much more!! The workshop includes meditation, experiential exercises and coaching from me. Go here to learn more.

Now let me share the story of how this event came about . . .

Teaching in Australia was never something I planned. Last March in my morning meditation, I kept hearing “Australia, Australia, Australia.” Australia wasn’t on my mind at all, but I’ve learned messages from the Universe tend to not make logical sense – that’s what makes them so magical. My antenna was up. Shortly thereafter I got two new clients from Australia, several emails from people in the Sydney area about whether or not I go there to teach, and randomly turned on NPR one morning in the middle of a story about, you guessed it…Australia!

Hmmm…I thought. What if I am supposed to go there? Then all kinds of other questions came up like: When do I go? How do I plan an event in another country? How will I market it? And all kinds of other questions from my logical mind that only stopped me. Then my intuition nudged me again as I heard: “JUST BOOK A TICKET.” So I did. I bought a ticket without any clue why exactly I was going. At the very least, I thought I’d have a vacation. ??Since booking the ticket, a series of synchronicities and miracles have transpired: amazing people who have literally dropped into my life to support ALL the logistics, PR and marketing. Incredible new Australian friends who are showing me around and staffing the event. Places to stay. An upgrade to business class. AND I happen to be going during the best time of year. All because I listened to my intuition.

Are you listening to yours? Your intuition will never lead you wrong…you just need to allow it to lead.

I’m beyond psyched to be led to teach in Sydney and visit this country for the first time. I know I have lots of amazing “mates” in this community so be sure to register soon to save your spot.

This workshop is for you if you want to:

  • Get focused on your unique purpose and stop wondering how to make a living doing what you love once and for all.
  • Eliminate habits that keep getting you the same undesired results and learn new strategies that get you the results you deserve.
  • Let go of your familiar yet debilitating story and create a new, empowering vision for your life that serves you personally,        professionally and financially.
  • Stop being hard on yourself and learn how to have a healthy relationship with THE most important person in your life – YOU.

>> Go here to join me!! <<

My nudge to you today is to set time aside to meditate, quiet your mind, and go within so you can actually hear your internal guidance. Perhaps there is somewhere you are supposed to go or do but your mind is so distracted by anxiety, fear or attachment to your comfort zone that your Higher Self is having hard time getting through to you. Imagine how your life would be different if you were pulled by your intuition rather than pushed by your mind.

Needless to say, I am so grateful to my Higher Self and the Universe for pulling me to Sydney. I cannot wait to head down under and meet many of you!

Go here for all the details and to register.

With love and gratitude,
Christine

My interview with friend and miracle worker Gabby Bernstein

Happy 2013! I hope your year is already off to a magnificent start.  I’m just got back to LA after celebrating the New Year in New York and then teaching a goal-setting workshop where the room was filled to capacity!! The group was amazing and had powerful breakthroughs and miracle moments. Everyone really touched my heart so THANK YOU to those of you who came.

And speaking of miracles . . .

While I was in NY I sat down with my friend Gabrielle Bernstein to talk about her new book May Cause Miracles.  Gabby and I have been friends since 2005 when she connected with me after my first book came out. I knew after one minute of speaking with her that she was going to be a major force in the world of personal growth.  Her passion for living a life full of love, not fear, is inspiring (she’s even been on OPRAH!!).

If you don’t know Gabby, I’m glad to introduce you to her.  If you do know Gabby, I know you’ll enjoy getting to know her more. In this video we talk about what inspired this book and the key to living a life full of miracles.

And Gabby when you order the book, Gabby is gifting you with TONS of free bonuses. You can check them all out here.

May your new year be filled with miracles!

Love,

Christine

A New Year’s Ritual for you

For the past eight years I have shared my New Year’s ritual to let go of the past and clarify my focus for the future.  I know many of you have joined me in this ritual and I love hearing about your experiences.  And this year to amp up this powerful process I have recorded a guided visualization and meditation as an extra special addition! Go here to get it. In this twelve- minute journey, I guide you through identifying the lessons and blessings from 2012 so you can clearly envision and begin creating what you’d like to experience in 2013.

Now onto my New Year’s tradition . . .

The following ritual does not involve making any kind of resolutions, which are usually promises to do something “more, better, or different.” We vow to exercise more, get a better job, fall in love, or find a different way to handle our stress. But does this really do us any good? Most of us start the New Year with the greatest of intentions, yet by March (or even by the second week in January) we may not find ourselves so resolved. We revert back to old patterns and beat ourselves up for not sticking to our resolutions. Could there be a way to ring in 2013 that serves us better?

YES! We can resolve not to make any resolutions and instead engage in a co-creative ritual of reflection and intention setting.

I invite you to follow this step-by-step process and amend it any way that inspires you:

1. Today (December 31st), carve out at least an hour of uninterrupted time for yourself. Create the mood – get comfy, quiet, light a candle, put on some music. Begin by writing in a journal what I call your “Year in Review.” Month by month recall events that happened, people you met, places you visited, lessons you learned, accomplishments, blessings, struggles, funny moments and so on. What is so great about looking at the year in this way is that you are able to notice how you have grown and express gratitude.

2. After you have gone through the year, consider the behavior, beliefs or habits that you’d like to leave behind. We all have our regrets and learning experiences, yet a lot of us tend to cling to them much longer than we need to. On a separate sheet of paper, write down what you would like to leave behind in 2012. For example: being obsessed with an ex, bad eating habits, overuse of a substance, limiting beliefs, repetitive/ disruptive thoughts, overuse of Facebook, consistent self-scrutiny, road rage, swearing and so on. When you complete this list, burn it or rip it up into tiny pieces to really let it go!

3. If you so choose, share your year in review with someone close to you. See what they recall, reminisce, and share a couple laughs.

4. Make a toast or light a candle to the end of the year. I encourage you to say a prayer of gratitude for 2012 and declare you are letting it go. At midnight on December 31st 2012, toast to releasing anything that no longer serves you.

5. On January 1st, begin to co-create/manifest 2013. Light a new candle, put on uplifting music, get comfortable . . . again, set the mood.

6. Find a blank sheet of unlined paper. As a suggestion, write at the top, “This or something better for the highest good of all concerned. And so it is.”

7. Without thinking or analyzing, write down anything and everything that comes to mind that you would like to co-create/manifest in 2013. Be specific, be creative and think big; however, your list should be at least 70 percent possible and believable. Write until your brain is empty – don’t worry about being greedy! The Universe loves to be generous!!! Important: write everything in present tense in the “I am” and use verbs to enthusiastically express what you want. For instance, “I am joyfully and easily securing a new job that is professionally fulfilling and offers me the opportunity to do what I love.

8. Choose a place to display your list – somewhere that only you can see it, treat it as something sacred. Or you can create a manifestation box and include this list as well as pictures and objects that are symbolic or meaningful to you.

 

9. Frequently throughout the year, review your list (everyday is ideal). Read what you wrote aloud and feel free to add to it. January 1st is not the only day of the year in which you can call in what you want! I encourage you to think about the list frequently and believe in the possibility of your manifestation power.

10. Throughout the year, observe with gratitude as things in your life begin to manifest. Celebrate AND do not beat yourself up or get discouraged over what is not happening. Focusing more on what is abundant in our lives ALREADY is the best way to generate more abundance. And remember that sometimes our time-line and the Universe’s time-line may be different.

The night of December 31st will come and go (and no one will remember what you wore) so instead of just trying to plan an epic evening, set your sights on co-creating an epic year!! Resolve to live your life in line with what you truly want to manifest. Rid yourself of any emotional, mental, physical, or interpersonal clutter so that you can get out of your own way. The thing about the co-creating and manifestation is that it takes action as well as thought and belief, so resolve this year to take steps to truly LIVE your best life.

Happy New Year!

Christine

Two final gifts you MUST give before the holidays are over!

I hope you are enjoying the magic of this season and that your holidays are blessed with joy, peace and love. In my yoga class this morning, the teacher asked us how many of us had moments of absolute joy this year. Everyone raised his or her hand. Then she asked us how many of us had moments of struggle and incredible pain. Again, all hands were up. That is the human experience – it’s joy AND pain.

No matter what your holiday experience has been like, can you be at peace with your human experience and ALL it gifts you with?

From this place of gratitude, I’d like to offer you two gifts to give that are an absolute must this holiday season. Now that you have wrapped and unwrapped the physical gifts you have given and received, it is time to bring your gift giving to another level.

The first is a gift to give yourself that is the gift of an inner experience that cultivating this year would be a total game changer for you. What could you gift yourself with that would create different results in your life? What could you gift yourself with that would free you from your old story and the struggle and suffering that goes with it? Perhaps it is the gift of self-acceptance. Or the gift of embracing and expressing your creativity. Or the gift of positive thinking. Or the gift of being in the present moment instead of obsessing about the past or worrying about the future.

There are infinite gifts of an inner experience that you could give yourself – think of the one that would be most transformational. I noticed this year I indulged in comparing myself to others in various aspects of my life and it did not feel good! So I am giving myself the gift of freedom from comparison and truly owning and enjoying my unique gifts.

The second gift to give is an inner shift that would alter your relationship dynamic with the most challenging person in your life. Think of who really pushes your buttons and ask what inner experience you could cultivate that would transform the way YOU show up. Maybe it is forgiveness, which will free you from the resentment you carry into your interactions. Maybe it is a sense of humor that will lighten up how seriously you take the other person. This isn’t a gift to tell the other person about – it’s something you do inside yourself. I am giving a challenging person in my life the gift of unconditional love. Instead of expecting and wanting this person to be different and avoiding them because they are not, I am gifting them with truly accepting them for who they are. And I can tell you this has already created a shift in my interaction with them.

As this holiday season comes to an end, remember the most important gift you give yourself and others is how you show up in every moment.

Many blessings,

Christine
